Namib to Fish River Canyon

We are thinking of staying in Sossus Camp but want to visit Fish River Canyon

How far is this & is it realistically driveable, there & back in one day, with an early start.

You are joking, yes?!

Well, you deserve an answer: not based on my personal experience but driving to Fish River Canyon from Sesriem is a long and strenuous drive one way. The above mentioned Google Maps gives shortest route at 8 hrs; I recon 10 hrs are closer to reality. One way.

Are your others drives similar in time/distance to be covered?

Wow!

No all others are OK - it's just once we saw the canyon we wanted to try to fit it in our schedule & now need to re-plan

What did you use to check out distances/driving times for your other routes? Most of the roads are gravel, and if trying to maintain an average speed of 60 km/h you will need to work hard behind the wheel.
